This week we welcome our friend and colleague cryptid researcher/author Lyle Blackburn to Arcane Radio

Lyle Blackburn is an author, musician, and cryptid researcher from Texas. His investigative cryptozoology books, The Beast of Boggy Creek: The True Story of the Fouke Monster and Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster reflect his life-long fascination with legends and sighting reports of real-life ‘monsters.’ During his research, Lyle has often explored the remote reaches of the southern U.S. in search of shadowy creatures said to inhabit the dense backwoods and swamplands of these areas.

Lyle is also a staff writer for the monthly horror magazine, Rue Morgue, and founder of the rock band Ghoultown.

Lyle has been heard on numerous radio programs including Coast To Coast AM, and has appeared on various television shows airing on Discovery, Animal Planet, Destination America, A&E, HGTV, and CBS.

Most recently, Lyle served as a consulting producer and special episode host for the TV show Monsters and Mysteries in America.

All great legends are based on a real event. Subsequent events simply add to the legend. This seems to be the case for the Lizard Man, a phenomenon that crescendoed into a national story. It still remains the namesake for Bishopville, South Carolina…a proud trademark for the area in and around the Scape Ore Swamp.

Lyle Blackburn and his partner Cindy Lee revisit the sighting locations, speak to the living eyewitnesses and consider all the possible theories in their search for the real Lizard Man.

Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster is an expertly crafted allegory that is informative as well as entertaining. The investigations conducted by the local authorities are chronicled so well that the reader shares in the drama of the encounters. The book provides exceptional documentation for one of the most bizarre cases of an unknown creature. It is the first time that the full and genuine story behind the Bishopville Monster is disclosed.

When Lyle Blackburn wrote his bestselling book The Beast of Boggy Creek: The True Story of the Fouke Monster he propelled the legendary Fouke Monster back into the public eye. The story of the Lizard Man had been on the fringes of the crypto world for many years. But now…that’s about to change.

I highly recommend Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster to my readers. I have no doubt that it will be considered one of the most important cryptozoology books in 2013 and beyond. Lon Strickler
